Los Angeles based accountant Travers Kineally wants to refuse the entreaty of the three dingbats who suddenly haunt him. However, though he can say no to the frantic females, he cannot deny his eleven year old son Kyle who persuades him that the quintet should journey to Las Vegas in order to help the nutty threesome regain whatever they seemingly misplaced.

Vegas based private investigator Zoe Sinclair figures she has seen it all in her century and half as a mage especially since becoming a sleuth. However, Zoe will soon learn she is a rookie when it comes to life's ironies. Her lesson is taught to her by her new clients, the three whacko Fates (Lachesis, Atropos, and Clitho) who have lost their enchanted status. To regain their former eminence the trio must locate a lost magical artifact. Protecting the three zanies from their millenniums of enemies is a full time job in of itself, but alas poor Zoe knows her fate and does not like it one iota though she finds the cynical Travers quite attractive. Now if she can only figure out a way to tell him what is really going on without scaring him off, she will be a very happy mage!
